Sue Harrison, of Nelson Township, sent us this adorable picture of three baby bunnies. She wrote: “When my husband Phil was cleaning out some of our flower beds, he discovered these three baby bunnies in a nest about the size of half a softball. When we first saw them, they were covered up with Mama rabbit’s fur and leaves, and were about 1-inch long. In just a short week, each baby has grown to about 1 ½-inches now. So cute! A sure sign that spring is around the corner!
That’s a great sign! And kudos to Sue and Phil for leaving the bunnies in their nest. This time of year, too many folks disturb the young, thinking they are abandoned, when they are not. See the other story on this page, “Leave wildlife in the wild” to learn what to do if you find baby animals.
